BP25- #7 Missouri Tigers
Offense-Everyone knows about Chase Daniel and Jeremy Maclin but the key to this offense will be replacing Tony Temple and Derrick Washington will be the one to watch, he will be running behind a very solid interior line and Colin Brown on the Right Tackle. So keys here will be have a decent running game and the rest will be fantastic. Chase and Maclin by the way will be in the hunt for the heisman, I know its not a news flash, but just wanted to be on the record.
Defense-Probably the most underrated defense in the land. Stryker Sulak and Ziggy Hood lead the Line and Sean Weatherspoon and Brock Christopher round out the front seven, all with potential all american and all conference cred. William Moore leads the secondary and is already being touted as the best DB in the land is at the Top of most Draft boards going into 2008.
Schedule-They open with a tough match up with Illinois whom it took everything they had in the opener last year to beat them. Then the appetizers step in the next 3 games before Big 12 season starts. They have to go on the road to Nebraska(which will be a statement game for the husker program and a measuring stick for the Pelini era) and to Texas. The only other tough game for them is the season ender at Arrowhead with against the Jayhawks who will have revenge on thier minds.
